All roads to war lead to Washington…

The road to hell may be paved with good intentions, but the road to war is paved with…?

US troops arrive in Poland for exercises across Eastern Europe amid Ukraine crisis

WASHINGTON – U.S. Army paratroopers are arriving in Poland to begin a series of military exercises in four countries across Eastern Europe to bolster allies in the wake of Russia’s annexation of Ukraine’s Crimean Peninsula last month.

Pentagon press secretary Rear Adm. John Kirby said Tuesday that the exercises will last about a month, and initially involve about 600 troops.

An Army company of about 150 soldiers from the 173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team based in Vicenza, Italy, will start the exercises Wednesday in Poland. Additional Army companies will head to Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania and are expected to arrive by Monday for similar land-based exercises in those countries.

Under the current plan, U.S. troops would rotate in and out of the four countries for additional exercises on a recurring basis.

“We’re looking at trying to keep this rotational presence persistent throughout the rest of this year,” Kirby told reporters, adding that over time the exercises could expand to other countries.

The exercises are part of an effort announced last week by Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel aimed at reassuring NATO allies of America’s commitment to the region’s defense.

I think this is just the beginning.

Canada is also sending troops, I guess.

But I know what you’re thinking…

Is this going to lead to World War Three?

What’s Putin gonna do about being encircled by the regime that funded a coup d’état in Ukraine?

What do you think?

What are North Korea and China gonna do?

What about the UK and the EU?

How is the debt-ridden US to pay for this war with Russia?

Hmmm.

US Foreign Policy Thugs:

These guys make some rather good points.

Is Washington Humanity’s Worst Enemy?

If it’s not, it’ll do until the real worst enemy gets here.

Meanwhile, China Defies Obama’s Slow Asia Pivot With Rapid Military Buildup

China’s got a few carrier’s on the build, but they won’t be ready till 2018, at the earliest. And they could never truly challenge the US in the Pacific unless Russia was involved, or if the US Pacific Fleet was gone or otherwise engaged when China makes it move South towards Australia…and across to Japan.

Some political theorists believe nukes could be used, and, if so, then perhaps all that will be a moot point.

I dunno.

I suppose they could do it…you get enough like-minded sociopaths in the highest places of government, banks, and multi-national corporations around the world, and they could be capable of doing it…but it asks the same old question: wouldn’t they destroy their own businesses in the process?

Yes, they would. They’d destroy it all. Tax payers, workers, infrastructure, all of it.

So, this is what I can’t get my head around.

Unless they want all that mayhem, death and destruction, out of which they can build their New World Psychosis…

I suppose we’ll see.

I hope they’re not that crazy.

Ugh. Well…maybe they are.

Yeah, besides, they’d ruin their owl…and we know how they love their little owls.

This is an incomplete list, and only shows the estimated deaths that are known, over merely the last 100 years, 130 years. Just one century.

How could you begin to tally the deaths of civilians killed through the 1700 and 1800s, or for the last thousand years? How can you count the dead civilians as a result of the British Empire alone? Or what Vlad the Impaler did, and was sanctioned to do by the Pope? How can you start to get a sense of what just the Roman Empire did from its beginnings as a Republic (500 BC to 27 AD)? Or the hundreds of empires and city states and kingdoms from 3000 BC to then?

And this is just death of citizens, subjects. This does not include those sacrificed in war, which is the right of the State to murder men, and some women, for its own selfish purposes.

This does not include torture and other forms of intense cruelty based upon pure malice, or religious wars and the atrocities carried out in the New World by the Old World.

The history of the world is the history of the struggle of the people to gain freedom from their enslavers. Period.

The Goal of Malice

Obviously, the will of evil or malice, as I prefer to call it, is more than about death and destruction. And it is more than what governments do to its own people, although this malice comes from the top down—the cream curdles at the top, folks, because only the weak, the pathetic, the control-freaks, and those who have an insane desire to do harm to large numbers of people, well, these are the types who climb power structures. They lie and manipulate their way to the top to gain the Authority to do evil to others. And they do. The more absolute their control, the more corrupt they always are.

The bullshit we have been lead to believe is that humans are inherently bad, and so our bad systems concentrate this putrefaction of humanity at the top, like the tip of a pimple ready to be squeezed to send infection downward upon everyone, and set a new policy of normal to which the masses will be forced (or convinced) to follow. This is true, except for the beginning part. Humans are not inherently bad, as I have demonstrated in a previous post.

Things are not bad; actions, choices, and intentions can be bad. But given the choice, without a system in place to give an authorized example of what the masses should do, people will do the right thing and remain honourable folks.

Anyroad, malice has a million methods of existing. Insulting and shaming a child is one form; lying and humiliating another person is another form. There are levels and types, and not all malice is about physical harm; because not all suffering is physical. But the person full of malice enjoys all types of suffering in others, for its sake.

What good people (most people) have a hard time understanding is the really terrible stuff, the really awful, chilling stuff, and how a person could do this to another person. Most people do not understand the nature of evil because it is outside their experience.

This leads us to start believing that outside forces are responsible for the actions of such malice-driven people. One might even claim that demons or aliens or even ten-foot-tall reptilian beings are behind it all.

But they’re not. It’s only humans here. And a lot of folks are in denial about this.

The more you see, the more you experience, and the more you allow yourself to be coaxed into carrying out evil actions, the more you can justify and rationalize (through a growing left-brain dominance in the mind, the phrenic disconnect of conscience)…the more you can begin to understand it.

And I think I just barely understand it.

So, I’m going to get into the goal of malice. Pain and suffering are great, as far as evil-doers are concerned, but over the centuries those in positions of control got bored with the usual dungeon torture stuff. To someone so sick and bitter and vile of spirit, the most hated thing is innocence.

Corrupting children is one goal of malice. Why? Because it’s absolutely contrary to any sane mindset, any natural law, or any law handed down by “God.” It’s anti-human, and anti-life. It’s just plain pure evil.

Those who openly embrace evil, throughout history, and have been public about it, have confirmed as much. Torturing children, burning them alive, sexually abusing them, getting them to trust you and then betraying and causing such agony and misery that the child’s begging and wailing lead to a snap of sanity, a breaking of the mind and spirit…well, these are a few of the favourite things of those who worship malice.

Here’s a good modern example:

I love the first comment on YouTube:

A whiny little creep who couldn’t control [h]is anger. He achieved nothing but a perverted sexual life, one experience to top the other meaning nothing in the end.

This was a non-royal Caligula. This was a kid who grew up without a father, first and foremost, and rebelled against what was a probably very oppressive life. He revolted against an organized religion, in particular, that was set up (by the State; the Eastern Roman Empire) by rulers to be a religion that made people ill on various levels, a religion designed to be contrary in the minds of its followers. Essentially, a religion set up to fail inevitably.

It wasn’t a “movement for freedom” for Crowley—it was an ego-centric recklessness built on Pagan and anti-christian beliefs; it was nihilistic and basically unnatural.

I don’t see an evil man; I see a very angry, hurt and very immature person who was petty and vindictive and manipulative, and who grew utterly insane. Of course he did evil things (raping children, probably drinking their blood and even killing them; sex with animals, which are innocent creatures to any human way of life or concept).

When extremism reaches its sane limits, then it edges into a variety of profanity that eclipses all reason, all instinct, and all natural sense, and finds itself spinning out into space, alone and afraid.

Remember, weak people seek control, power; they want authority to be sanctioned to do what they want. And they love things like magic (which is what?—getting others, or other forces, to do what you want). The cowardly always have others do their fighting for them, and do their dirty work for them—smart, really, since underlings end up going to jail if anything breaks.

But the worst of us always remain in control, snug and warm in their social and political nests.

People claim that Charles Manson was the worst serial killer in American history. Why? Manson never killed anyone. He got others to do it for him.

Manson was very much like royalty, or government, kings and queens and emperors and self-appointed masters over us, the peasants. They never do anything directly; the incarnation of their malice, mass-inflicted, is almost always carried out by authorized agents (priests and priestesses, assassins, goons, thugs, armies, police) while they remain on their thrones, in luxury.

This what worshipers of malice love the most: getting good people to inflict terror and misery upon other good people. What must be the most satisfying would be getting a person to torture itself, feel that it deserves it, and love those who brought about these self-destructive acts.

Anyway, this is the mindset that I think plagues the world today.

How do you bring down the “goodness” of a people?

You overthrow the source of their morality (religion) and leave them nothing to fall back on (conscience) except what the aristocracy puts forth (through science or even pseudo-science will do); in this vacuum, common and straight-forward things we used to value get replaced by the agenda of others.

It is done gradually, incrementally, so that generationally it is hard to notice.

Once you make the religion passe, then the young people and the growing non-religious will ignore any and all warning of what’s coming because those older religious people will appear demented, dogmatic, and repetitive (not to mention the underlying ulterior motive that’s (rightfully) suspected; “Oh, you’re just saying that because you want to convert me!—piss off!”).

[It took me years to figure out that I was falling into this as well; if a Christian told me my pants were on fire, and I looked down and saw that it was so, I still would have denied it and argued with them about it.]

You devalue human life, for starters. You use your court magicians to convince the masses that certain types of people aren’t really people. You start with unborn babies, and, if you can get away with it, other types of humans who are in need of help—the elderly and infirm, the mentally defective and brain damaged. Eventually you can raise this standard of normalcy to include the killing of babies already born. At the same time, you exalt the corporation to “person” status. The ultimate goal is to deify the State (such as what became of English Socialism in “Orwell’s” novel Nineteen-Eighty-Four; the only love allowed was to the State, and all citizens were born with one function in life: service to the State, the new God).

“We are not content with negative obedience, nor even with the most abject submission. When finally you surrender to us, it must be of your own free will. We do not destroy the heretic because he resists us; so long as he resists us we never destroy him. We convert him, we capture his inner mind, we reshape him. We burn all evil and all illusion out of him; we bring him over to our side, not in appearance, but genuinely, heart and soul. We make him one of ourselves before we kill him. It is intolerable to us that an erroneous thought should exist anywhere in the world, however secret and powerless it may be. Even in the instance of death we cannot permit any deviation . . . we make the brain perfect before we blow it out.”

[Orwell, by the way, was not a concerned writer warning the future of what was coming; Eric Arthur Blair was his real name and he was part of the establishment, along with characters like H.G. Wells and Aldous Huxley. (All the Huxley clan were insiders.) These people were the intelligentsia employed by those who are now shaping our world to suit their plans. The social engineers. They are the O’Briens. And they love to be smart and witty, and they love to brag and curl their moustaches; and even better to shove our faces in it. What these people “hide” is usually in plain sight.]

You invent and-or magnify the problems in the world (that you created) and convince the people that it was all their fault. Then you get them to come up with the solutions that you had planned all along: death, murder, torture, war, destruction, and more and more taxes. More than this, though, you instill a sense of guilt and shame…just for being born.

You want these people to throw themselves onto swords—and offer their children to the State as sacrifice.

“We know that no one seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means, it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power. Now do you begin to understand me?”

Then, eventually, under a broad base of belief systems, you phase out the religion you had installed in the first place and replace it with the very (old) one to which you and your ilk have belonged for millennia. New Age into New Paganisn.

But first you need the family destroyed—you need the father out of the way, so there is no defense. Then you send the mother to work. Now the school, the State, and the media (TV), becomes the parent.

You also need conscience disconnected to a large degree. A belief system isn’t enough—you must render the masses’ right-brains ineffective; unused, atrophied. And television is just great for this.

And at some point you bring back State approved direct sacrifice—not just the slaughter of men, boys, and a few women in wars—now you can legally throw babies into the fire again. Now you can legally sodomize toddlers, and get off from their pleadings and tears, before you kill them.

Once the globe is under absolute control few a select few, you can literally turn the world into a living hell for everyone—and feed off this mass anguish like a vampire.

Once you have all your global subjects reduced to non-human, miserable, destitute servants who embrace their lot and love you for it all—you have become a deity. A god.

It’s happened before, and it will happen again. Only the people can stop it; not institutions, not pieces of paper or promises. Not proxies or elected mouth-pieces or smiling, suited corporate gangsters.

And if you disbelieve it, well, I wish you a lot of luck, my friend.

“Paganism is wholesome because it faces the facts of life.”
—Aleister Crowley

Some final words on evil. And what I mean by this: the mindscape of those who consistently engage in evil deeds…

Lying is (well, at least it used to be) bad enough, but evil mixes truth with lies, which is so much worse than lying. Evil never apologizes or accepts responsibility for what it does; it never regrets because it feels superior and always has an excuse, reason, justification, rationalization, or it has someone or something else to blame. But it only does this last one when it gets caught.

Evil never shares and has no sense of good-will—and it never gives up its control. It is always afraid, and would rather stay hidden. It is always cowardly, and will never risk itself for any reason. And what it hates more than anything is innocence, freedom, and instinct. It hates innocence because this seems to be its exact opposite (evil is not trusting and pure; it is corrupt). It hates freedom because it is not free. It hates instinct because it contains only cold, brutal logic.

Evil has no sense of humour.

O’Brien: “You must get rid of these nineteenth-century ideas about the laws of Nature. We make the laws of Nature….How does one man assert his power over another, Winston?”

Winston thought. “By making him suffer,” he said.

“Exactly. By making him suffer. Obedience is not enough. Unless he is suffering, how can you be sure that he is obeying your will and not his own? Power is inflicting pain and humiliation. Power is tearing human minds to pieces and putting them together again in new shapes of your own choosing. Do you begin to see, then, what kind of world we are creating? It is the exact opposite of the stupid hedonistic Utopias that the old reformers imagined. A world of fear and treachery and torment, a world of trampling and being trampled upon, a world which will grow not less but
more merciless as it refines itself. Progress in our world will be progress towards more pain. The old civilizations claimed that they were founded on love or justice. Ours is founded upon hatred. In our world there will be no emotions except fear, rage, triumph and self-abasement. Everything else we shall destroy—everything. Already we are breaking down the habits of thought which have survived from before the Revolution. We have cut the links between man and woman. No one dares trust a wife or a child or a friend any longer. But in the future there will be no wives and no friends. Children will be taken from their mothers at birth, as one takes eggs from a hen. The sex instinct will be eradicated.

Procreation will be an annual formality like the renewal of a ration card. We shall abolish the orgasm. Our neurologists are at work upon it now. There will be no loyalty, except loyalty towards the Party. There will be no love, except the love of Big Brother. There will be no laughter, except for the laugh of triumph over a defeated enemy. There will be no art, no literature, no science. When we are omnipotent we shall have no more need of science. There will be no distinction between beauty and ugliness. There will be no curiosity, no enjoyment of the process of life. All competing pleasures will be destroyed. But always—do not forget this, Winston—always there will be the intoxication of power, constantly increasing and constantly growing subtler. Always, at every moment, there will be the thrill of victory, the sensation of trampling on an enemy who is helpless. If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face—for ever.”
